I'd think that too, but the Vorta never seemed to question why the Federation was in charge of the station they just got orders from not two minutes ago (from their perspective). It'll be interesting to see if the Jem'Hadar were aware of the passage of time.
They also may have gotten tactical updates as well, seeing the fight w/o them wasn't going as well. And from a tactical point of view after some unknown effect (them being moved), you'd want to have a forward scouting party to get status of what's on the otherwise of the wormhole. But I get we'll find out shortly. Episode just went live as I'm typing this.
Gorgeous map, multiple things to do, multiple people to talk to. Even the stars in the sky (and the amazing Day/Night Cycle!) and the water effects were grand. And it's a large map, hopefully something that can be used in the Foundry (once you guys make playing Foundry missions give meaningful rewards).
Kudos to the team. It doesn't make up for the missing year of content but it's appreciated.
